NAME

       ip-fou - Foo-over-UDP receive port configuration

       ip-gue - Generic UDP Encapsulation receive port configuration

SYNOPSIS

       ip [ OPTIONS ] fou  { COMMAND | help }

       ip fou add port PORT { gue | ipproto PROTO  } [ local IFADDR  ] [ peer IFADDR  ] [
               peer_port PORT  ] [ dev IFNAME  ]
       ip fou del port PORT [ local IFADDR  ] [ peer IFADDR  ] [ peer_port PORT  ] [ dev IFNAME
               ]
       ip fou show

DESCRIPTION

       The ip fou commands are used to create and delete receive ports for Foo-over-UDP (FOU) as
       well as Generic UDP Encapsulation (GUE).

       Foo-over-UDP allows encapsulating packets of an IP protocol directly over UDP. The
       receiver infers the protocol of a packet received on a FOU UDP port to be the protocol
       configured for the port.

       Generic UDP Encapsulation (GUE) encapsulates packets of an IP protocol within UDP and an
       encapsulation header. The encapsulation header contains the IP protocol number for the
       encapsulated packet.

       When creating a FOU or GUE receive port, the port number is specified in PORT argument. If
       FOU is used, the IP protocol number associated with the port is specified in PROTO
       argument. You can bind a port to a local address/interface, by specifying the address in
       the local IFADDR argument or the device in the IFNAME argument. If you would like to
       connect the port, you can specify the peer address in the peer IFADDR argument and peer
       port in the peer_port PORT argument.

       A FOU or GUE receive port is deleted by specifying PORT in the delete command, as well as
       local address/interface or peer address/port (if set).

EXAMPLES

   Configure a FOU receive port for GRE bound to 7777
       # ip fou add port 7777 ipproto 47

   Configure a FOU receive port for IPIP bound to 8888
       # ip fou add port 8888 ipproto 4

   Configure a GUE receive port bound to 9999
       # ip fou add port 9999 gue

   Delete the GUE receive port bound to 9999
       # ip fou del port 9999

   Configure a FOU receive port for GRE bound to 1.2.3.4:7777
       # ip fou add port 7777 ipproto 47 local 1.2.3.4
